July 16, 2021 by Eaton Electronic Components

Use Case Overview

Advancing trends in industry 4.0 combine cyber-physical systems with the Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, and smart machines, resulting in faster and more efficient industrial processes and increased production volumes. By utilizing a bevy of sensors in industrial equipment, operators can track process levels in real-time to optimize the usage of resources. Robotic and automated systems also speed up production while reducing space requirements on factory floors. Every component of smart factories is digitally interconnected in real-time, allowing for seamless information exchange, streamlined operations, predictive maintenance, and more.

This use case covers topics such as addressing electromagnetic interference (EMI) and noise due to high-frequency switching and changes in current or voltage levels. It also describes why Eaton’s semi-shielded inductors are the ideal solution for Industry 4.0 and beyond.
